I have travelled and climbed many places ( Himalayas, Patagonia,etc) and dealt with many outfitters so I know a bit about this. Nate Snydor (owner/operator) and his chief guide Justin provided a fantastic experience for our family -- boys 15, 13 and 10. Justin took us canyoneering which included a 60 ft rappel and was so much fun to have... More

Nate is an expert in canyoneering and friendly as a guide! He made our trip to Moab the best that it could be, by putting our daughters, age 9 and 10 at ease in the red rock canyons- both on and off ropes, rappelling and hiking. We trust Nate for all of our future adventures in Moab.

On a recent trip down to Utah to visit friends I had one day in Moab and really wanted to try out a desert tower while there...Nate was super easy to coordinate with and we talked through my experience level to make sure Ancient Art would be an appropriate first desert tower climb. My guide on the actual day of... More

We hired Nate to take our 10-year-old daughter for a morning climb, and he was AMAZING. She had climbed on climbing walls before, but never on real rock, and Nate was just wonderful to work with - encouraging, fun, and eager to convey his own sense of passion for rock climbing to the next generation. When I met up with... More

MDA took my 13 year old son and I climbing for 2 days. Nate was personable and professional and I trusted him completely. He had excellent suggestions for places to go and restaurants to try. It was my favorite activity on one of my favorite vacations EVER!

We (German couple, 30y, sport climbers) did our first multi-pitch and trad climb route as a guided day trip with Nate from Moab Desert Adventures. We had an absolutely brilliant experience. Nate is a really experienced guide and fun guy! Not only did we feel very safe with him, he also patiently explained every part of the gear and trad-climbing... More

Our family experience our first canyoneering trip with Justin at Moab Desert Adventures on Friday. He is their top guide for this exciting and slightly challenging activity. Justin had a passion for his profession and teaches this to you. He is very patient with adventure seekers of any skill level and we had these different levels in our party. We... More

Did a half day hike with rappels with Moab Desert Adventures last week. Included three decent sized rapels. I hadn't done this in more than a decade and so I was a little nervous to say the least backing off a 150 ft uneven face, I our guide was great! Our guide Larry Harpe is the best of Moab with...

This was the first time canyoneering for my family, and it was a great day for everyone! We have not stopped talking about everything! Nate and Justin had their hands full because I have a mobility issues. They accommodated my pace, and yet still made it fun for everyone! We had two long rapells and a lot of hiking. The... More

We were first time visitors to Moab and wanted to try rock climbing for the first time. We were pointed in the direction of desert adventures by the guys at the local sport shop. It was Memorial Day weekend so things were packed out. Nate was wonderful returning our calls and being persuaded to take us on a late afternoon... More
